The staff of the Rifugio Madonna delle Nevi, together with the Association “Goo – Guardare oltre l’ovvio” (which means “Looking beyond what is common-place”), has organized a brand new proposal for schools of all kinds. In accordance with the theme which EXPO MILANO 2015 deals with (“Feeding the planet. Energy for life”), we will lead you to look at FOOD from a new perspective. The Alps offer a wide range of natural food, such as milk, cheese and honey. In our labs you’ll discover how milk is collected and how it’s processed into cheese (both fresh and seasoned). You’ll also learn everything about the fascinating life of bees and the complex architecture of a bee-hive. Besides, in our atelier you’ll make your own mask using paper fruits and vegetables, drawing inspiration from the great Italian artist Arcimboldo, whose most famous painting has inspired the creation Foody, the EXPO’s mascot. Dealing with natural food will help your student understand the importance of this delicate issue in the context of contemporary world and society.
